The Selecao will be aiming to finish top of their group with a win and these Cameroon vs. Brazil predictions suggest that is exactly what will happen. The Indomitable Lions’ campaign may have not gone to plan, but Rigobert Song’s side have acquitted themselves well and should prove a tough test for Brazil.
Cameroon vs. Brazil odds
1 – Brazil to win – 2/9
2 – Over 2.5 goals scored – 8/13
3 – Brazil to score a penalty – 11/4
4 – Brazil to keep a clean sheet – 8/11
5 – Brazil to win to nil – 5/6
The favourites kick-off against the fifth lowest ranked team in the World Cup on Friday. Brazil’s final group stage match comes against Cameroon, who qualified for the competition after missing out in 2018.
Following a few years of struggles, the Indomitable Lions have improved recently with the Serie A contingent of Andre Onana and Andre-Frank Anguissa supported by the likes of Brentford’s Bryan Mbuemo and Bayern Munich’s Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting. Unfortunately for Rigobert Song’s side, their solid core saw them come up short against nations with more depth, and they are about to face one of the most talent-rich squads in the world.
Tite’s side will be well aware of their status as favourites. But having crashed out spectacularly in the 2018 World Cup, they will be keen to ensure their progress in this competition. Despite the low odds, Brazil remain our uncontroversial tip to win on Friday evening.
The Selecao rarely lacks attacking talent, but this year the squad is perhaps more offensive-minded than ever. Tite has a wealth of forwards to select from and could easily rotate the entire front line and retain a world class XI. As a result, it would come as no surprise to see over 2.5 goals in the game.
Despite their attacking set-up, Brazil are no slouches defensively and in Thiago Silva and Marquinhos have a perfect relationship at centre-back. Cameroon have struggled at times to break teams down during this tournament, so a wager on Brazil to keep a clean sheet could well pay off.

Cameroon team news
Rigobert Song might rotate his team for Friday’s game in an attempt to progress. Vincent Aboubakar may be given a start looking to exploit Thiago Silva’s lack of pace, whilst Georges-Kevin Nkoudou may feature out wide over Karl Toto-Ekambi.
Brazil team news
Tite may also opt to rotate his squad for this final group game. Thiago Silva would be the player most likely to require a rest, with Bremer potentially stepping in, while Gabriel Jesus may start in place of Richarlison – with Neymar likely to be absent through injury again.
